Titanic Memorial Lighthouse

I’m so excited to be featured in The Friends of the Titanic Instagram. They have launched a GoFundme fundraiser to restore the lighthouse on the 110th Anniversary of the tragedy on April 15, 2022.  Join living relatives of the passengers and crew in preserving their memories by helping to restore the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse. Ten percent of purchases on my Paint the Parks Page will be donated to The Friends of The Titanic. 

Cape Elisabeth Lighthouse

Maine has some of the largest and busiest ports on the East Coast. Its fierce waters and treacherous rocks are guarded by a host of lighthouses. At least 98 vessels were wrecked on the shores of Cape Elisabeth. 

Cape Elizabeth and West lighthouses’ construction in 1832 at the same location distinguished them from Portland Head Lighthouse.  Cape Elizabeth had a fixed light while Cape Elizabeth West had a flashing light.

About Me

I’ve visited close to 70 lighthouses in the United States, Ireland and England.

I endeavor through my lighthouse art to live out the motto of my alma mater, the University of Hawaii: “Maluna a’e o na lahul a pau ke ola ke kanaka” (Above all nations is humanity.) Although there are over 18,000 lighthouses in the world. They all have one mission, saving lives.
